Colorado mass murder suspect James Holmes made his first appearance in a Colorado courtroom moments ago. He is being held without bond in the shooting deaths of 12 film goers and injuring 58 others during a midnight screening of Batman: Dark Knight Rises early Friday. Holmes appeared to be heavily medicated as the judge explained that his case qualifies for 1st degree murder charges.

Holmes wore prison-issued clothing when he was escorted into the courtroom by armed guards. He appeared to nod off many times during the court hearing. At other times he struggled to keep his eyes open. Formal charges will be brought against Holmes on Monday.

Psychotic detainees are sometimes medicated if they are combative or pose a threat to others prior to a court hearing.

  • Androgynous rapper Tyga allowed himself to be photographed with his pregnant muse, former stripper Chyna Blac. As you know, Tyga knocked up Chyna just minutes after he met her in a Miami strip club months ago. Meanwhile, according to my west coast connect, Tyga is telling friends that he can't stand the sight of Chyna. My source tells me that there is a lot of screaming and plate throwing in the Tyga household lately.

    In fact, the air is so charged with static that Tyga has reportedly taken up temporary residence with someone else......

    Critics and child advocates called for the NCAA to levy the so-called "death penalty" on Penn State. But just moments ago, NCAA president Mark Emmert hit Penn State with a $60 million fine and a 4-year suspension during a press conference.

    Saying Penn State was too big to fail, Emmert spared Penn State the dreaded "death penalty." Instead, he stripped the school of its football wins from 1998 through 2011 -- which places Joe Paterno behind football legends Eddie Robinson and Bear Bryant as the most winningest coaches in football history.

    In addition to losing 1 year in football revenues, the NCAA also imposed a 4-year bowl ban on Penn State. The NCAA will allow Penn State football players to transfer to other schools where they will be eligible to play immediately.

    The announcement came one day after demolition crews tore down the Joe Paterno statue on the Penn State campus. Paterno, who died in January, is accused of turning a blind eye toward the child molestation charges lodged against his former coach Jerry Sandusky.

  • A writer for Clutch magazine wrote a scathing commentary on struggling R&B singer Brandy and other black celebs who speak out in defense of Chris Brown.

    Brown's career has never recovered from the backlash of his 2010 conviction stemming from the beating of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

    Writer Renee Martin hit the nail on the head when she wrote: "It does not help that celebrities are continually suggesting that Brown needs forgiveness."

    Noting that Brandy's concern for Brown might be motivated by her own selfish interests, Renee writes:

    Brandy would be more likely to admit this had she not collaborated with him on her single “Put it Down.” This endorsement sounds like someone who is trying to revive a flagging career no matter the cost.

    Ouch.

    An unreleased throwback photo of Beyonce and Jay Z was emailed to me by a loyal reader. The undated Olan Mills-type photo shows a nerdy looking Jay Z posing with Beyonce who is wearing no makeup. Beyonce's should-length hair appears to be thinning. This photo explains why she relies on custom made lacefront wigs. The photo was obviously never intended for public release.
